MONTREAL - Montreal centre David Desharnais will not travel with the Canadiens as they hit the road for the next two games in their Eastern Conference semifinal series with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Desharnais missed Game 2 on Sunday with an illness as the Canadiens fell 6-2 to the Lightning.

Brian Flynn replaced Desharnais in the lineup and could remain there for Game 3, which is Wednesday night at Amalie Arena.

Desharnais has two assists in seven playoff games this spring.

Montreal trails the series two games to none.
